Hello I'm new here. This is our third baby and I am considering home birth this time. My first two were in a hospital. The first was horrible and one of the worst experiances of my life. I had an epidural that hit my spine and then had to be redone and then didn't work anyway along with a lot of other problems and issues. The second birth was at a different hospital in a different state and was wonderful. It was still labor don't get me wrong but my epi worked and everything went like I felt it should. The doctors and nurses were great and I had no issues.
I want this birth to be nice and peacful and calm like the second one was. I'm ok with a hospital birth but saveing the money would be nice and after having such a good experiance with my second I think a homebirth might actually be a possibility for me. With my second I only labored for 4 hours and she came in I think 2 pushes. So very easy with her. Only thing was they did cut me because I started to tear along my old tear with the first one.
Anyway I would like to know if there is anyone else out there that had a very tramatic first birth in the hospital but then went on to have a wonderful home birth. Better yet would be someone who had experiances like mine and then went on to have a wonderful homebirth.
